I also passed Senate Bill 1642 today. This bill requires drivers' education curriculum to include instruction about how to safely share the roadway with bicyclists and pedestrians, who have just as much of a right to the road as anyone.

Senate Bill 1641 passed the Senate today. This bill will help students who are eligible for SNAP benefits learn about their eligibility. This will help many students who might otherwise struggle to make ends meet!

My mental health bill, Senate Bill 1188, passed through the Senate. This bill allows a court to enter a defendant into a diversionary program rather than into the criminal justice system. We need to stop the practice of criminalizing mental illness!

I am constantly inspired by the work of the incredible women in public office. I want to give a shout out to who served part of my district for nearly 40 years and was always a trailblazer. We never got a chance to serve together, but her legacy continues on!

From the East Side to the Gold Coast, we believe that the whole district should be covered and heard from! We are looking forward to discussing democracy with students!

Today I passed my first bill, Senate Bill 1743. This bill requires DCFS to survey youth who are transitioning out of their care in order to help identify and fix deficiencies within the system. I will always fight for adoptive and foster children!
